Hi Dwight Hall!

First I'd like to call your attention to the new Dwight Hall newsletter: Advocacy Minute!

"Advocacy Minute is a biweekly email newsletter and blog with quick, easy action items generated by Yale students and student groups. Action options include, but are not limited to, writing a letter, signing a petition, attending a rally, and making a phone call. Advocacy Minute a way for Yale students who want to bring about social change to support each others work. It allows students to draw broad support for their issue of interest while, in turn, supporting issues of interest to others."

If you're interested in the Advocacy Minute, please look at the blog and signup here:

Please also be aware that the YHHAP Shelter Now Campaign is kicking-off in 10 days at the Sleepout and will continue with a series of events including the YHHAP FAST, Family Weekend Professor Lunches and more!

Shelter Now is a fundraising campaign of the Yale Hunger and Homelessness Action Project, supporting winter shelters in New Haven. The campaign began in October 2008, when the Cedar St. Overflow Shelter was almost entirely cut from the City budget. Its closure would have forced up to 125 men into freezing temperatures on the streets of our city. Over the next two months, Shelter Now worked with advocates and non-profits throughout the New Haven area, and successfully kept the shelter open. Because the budget crisis continues in New Haven, the Shelter Now campaign continues as well. This year, YHHAP hopes to raise $25,000 to alleviate severe cuts to women's and children's shelters: Life Haven and New Haven Home Recovery.

Please consider showing your support at one of YHHAPs upcoming events. See below for more information!

Hope all is well,
